Soundscape design of motorway environments presents new opportunities for existing and future infrastructure projects, which must contend with motorway noise issues. We have found that noise transformation and cancellation approaches integrated with targeted ethnographic assessments of community perceptions can add to existing noise management approaches, which aim to improve the quality of life for people living alongside motorway environments.
